Re: Nothing?

No one put anything at all here yesterday, Wednesday? Was there any kind of malfunction? Or, was it really no one having anything at all to say here yesterday? I do not think I'd ever prior seen such a day. The horror of the day before must have had something to do with it. Maybe. But, on the other...

Re: Backtesting the PP all the way to 1971?

I admit this qualifies as a shameless plug (and I promise not to make a habit of it), but another option is to try one of my new standalone backtesting tools . You'll have to supply your own source data, but the individual PP asset histories aren't too hard to dig up and you also have control over ...

It's like that recent viral video of Bill Maher saying something like, "I didn't change, the Democratic Party did." It’s funny to watch extreme leftists on twitter call Maher a traitor.

Re: Washington Journal

Reducing gun violence does not necessarily mean taking away gun ownership rights. As usual when I have Washington Journal on I'm doing one, two, or three other things also so I'm only hearing bits and pieces of it. But the two things that stuck out regarding guns was that when someone brought up wh...

No, you’re right, joypog. It has totally been a libertarian hangout. But, enough members have left that it’s hard to tell where the majority is. Definitely not far leftists, of course. Still definitely not even close to being over the liberal / conservative line in some way. There are some liberal ...

I'm sure iBonds play an important role for those in the accumulation phase of life.

I started paying the $20/year to Google a couple months ago for 100GB. Why I was even concerned about $20 a year I don't know.


My pictures use over 1 TB of space. I think they set the limit at 1 TB for free. So those first ones I've left there with the newer ones not there.
